Kansas freshman guard Josh Selby was named the Big 12 rookie of the week, the conference announced Monday.

In his first collegiate game Saturday, Selby finished with 21 points, including the game-winning three-pointer, in KU's 70-68 victory over USC.

The 6-foot-2 guard from Baltimore was 5-for-11 from the floor, 5-for-8 from three-point range and 6-for-7 from the free-throw line with five rebounds.

Texas A&M's Khris Middleton was named Big 12 player of the week.

I do agree in part with you actorman about what she said on TV but who really cares about what was said in the long run. His mom was probably just excited to be here in person and to finally get the chance to see her son play in his first College game.

It was nice that Josh's mom held him to account for missing four shots and a free throw. But it would have been a little more impressive if she hadn't referred to the "City of Kansas." Didn't exactly make her look brilliant.

And I would like to award the Big XII the Thank You Captain Obvious Of The Week award.

It's quite coveted. It's only given by posters on this site who wish to anonymously present an air of superiority over others.

Which means it's given out by the hour.

DDDUUUHHHH!!

I'm sure everyone realizes how rare it is when the "Hop" actually exceeds the "Hype".

I, however, nominate Josh's Mom, Ms. Witherspoon as Freshman Mother of the Week. After the announcer gushed about her son's performance she came back with a quote on national television that was priceless....." yeah, but he's missed four shots and a free throw."

Josh, my boy..listen to Mom and you'll be a star!! You gotta love it!!!!
